Fleur Hitchcock

Born in Chobham and raised outside Winchester, Fleur grew up as the youngest child of three.

She spent her younger years reading Tintin and Batman, and searching for King Alfred's treasure.

When she was slightly older, she went away to school near Farnham, studied English in Wales, and, for the next twenty years, sold Applied Art in the city of Bath.

When her younger child was seven, she embarked on the Writing for Young People MA at University (Bath Spa University) and graduated with a distinction.

Now living outside Bath, between parenting and writing, Fleur works with her husband, a toymaker, looks after other people's gardens and tries to grow vegetables.
